"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW selection is...
Author: Nicole Castroman
Series: Blackhearts, book #2
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: February 7, 2017
Nicole Castroman brings the dangerous pirate ports of the Caribbean to life in this vibrant sequel to Blackhearts—the reimagined origin story of history’s most infamous pirate, Blackbeard.
Edward “Teach” Drummond is setting sail to the Caribbean as first mate on the most celebrated ship in the British fleet—until he rebels against his captain. Sailing on the same blue waters, Anne barely makes it to the Caribbean, where she hopes to learn more about her ancestry. What she doesn’t expect is a port filled with lawless criminals and danger lurking around every corner.
With the mutinous Teach in chains, Anne must brave the perilous, pirate haven of Nassau in order to save not only Teach, but her new friends on the island. But when Teach is offered a deal—capture a notorious pirate or waste away in the Governor’s dungeons—what he discovers brings him closer and closer to becoming a pirate himself. And further away from Anne who is being held hostage in exchange for Teach’s loyalty to the Governor.
Now Teach must decide if he should risk his own soul to save Anne. Even if that means turning into a ruthless pirate…
Even if that means turning into Blackbeard.
So, I was a bit distraught when I reached the end of Blackhearts and realized that there was no sequel already planned. That ending was left so open and rife with possibilities...there just had to be more to Teach and Anne's story. I was beyond ecstatic to learn that a sequel was in the works later, but now we have a GLORIOUS cover to go with it. That premise and that cover do not bode well for our characters, but I have faith that this author can tell the story that needs to be told.
